Southport 8th grade students were engaged in a technology enhanced practice for their current unit, Systems of Equations. Students, together in groups, answered questions as a team, then when they came to a consensus for their answer, they took turns being the “runner.” The “runner” went to the answer zone in the hallway and found the correct QR code that matched the answer they chose. They scanned the QR code with their phones which, if they chose the right answer the QR code gave them the next question. The students really enjoyed the activity. Malik Copeland said, “It helped me comprehend what we did in class.” Leslie Flores said, “It was fun because we got to communicate with our peers.”
Great job to Southport’s 8th grade teachers for organizing such a fun activity.
